Is there anyone who can help me? I need to find a pattern in these numbers:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1/2, 1/6, 1/12, 1/20, 1/30, 1/42, 1/56. Now, I know just by looking at the denominators, if I could only work with those, I could use the formula:

2n+a_n_1. But I have that fraction, so it's all screwy. Anyone see where I'm screwing up? I know I can't.
